  1. That graphic is very helpful scook, I didn't think the controls would be found there. I was thinking more like a traditional analog synth, so I was primarily looking for them in the LFO/Mod sections only. With DP being vst, I keep forgetting that other controls can be assigned for more than one function, so very helpful to know where they are, at least in that particular patch. I'll play around with some of those settings and see what I can come up with. As Kevin mentioned, even if I can't get rid of it altogether, just backing it down enough so that it's not interfering with the Leslie plugin fx would be fine. Thanks for the assist, much appreciated as always.
  2. Hey scook, thanks, I remember using the Event Filter once before to stop the rotary per another discussion we had. I just thought maybe I could go straight to the source of the rotary fx somewhere within DimPro, maybe a modulation or LFO parameter setting I could quickly turn off instead of using the event filter. I figured being an organ preset there would be something readily available on the dashboard. I looked and tried changing a couple setting that I thought might be it, but no luck. Thanks bud, appreciate the reply as always.
  3. Hi, Does anyone know how to turn off the Rotary speaker FX on the organ presets in Dimension Pro? I'd like to use a 3rd party Rotary Leslie plugin and need to turn off the one programmed into the DimPro preset. I couldn't seem to find access to that parameter to turn it off. (I assume all of the DimPro organ presets are programmed the same way for the Rotary FX, so it might not matter which preset.) Thanks
  4. Hi I'm using CW Vocal Strip FX plug-in on one of my projects. At some point I probably experimented with the settings during playback to see what sounded best, in particular the Feedback setting in the delay section. After listening a few times, I decided to cut that feedback knob from about 11 o'clock down to about 8 or 9 o'clock and it sounded much better. I saved the project with that knob in the 8 o'clock position, but when I went back in the next time, the feedback knob position was back to 11 o'clock. I thought maybe during my experimenting with different settings during playback, I may have recorded the automation of that knob. So I tried deleting the plugin altogether from that track, and re-inserted it again new, then with the now time at the beginning of the project, I set it where I wanted it without the playback running. Same thing happened. It's just not staying where I set it, even when I save the project afterwards. So I'm thinking there is some automation I need to delete somewhere, just can't figure out where, if that is in fact the solution. This is strange though, because in the plugin window the record and write automation buttons are both off. Any help appreciated. Thanks! MM

  6. I'm wondering how taxing it is on the RAM to have these clip gain envelopes spread throughout a project. I haven't noticed any spikes in CPU meter since adding them. I'm guessing probably not much, no way to tell for sure.
  7. Thanks for the help, and for the JPEGs, much appreciated! This is kinda different than the method I used to use, but it gets the job done. I agree, seems the best way to go is just ignore the other clips that are unaffected, doesn't do any harm to have an envelope waiting there in case it's needed.
  8. Ok, hang on a minute. I must not be doing this right......when I use that method, ALL the clips in that track are given a Gain Envelope. I only want to use it on one clip, how is that done? I can't seem to get it. I don't mind if it is destructive, I just want to use a gain envelope on only one clip. Right clicking the clip does me no good, and highlighting just the one clip doesn't do it either, ALL clips still get the gain envelope when I use Clip Automation. There must be a way to isolate the gain envelope to just one clip without affecting the others.... Any help appreciated, thank you!
  9. Chappel, thank you! 😎 I had a feeling it was just somewhere else! When I looked it up online CW Documentation I didn't find it there. Glad it's still around, very handy tool!
  10. I haven't had to use it in a long time, until today. Used to be able to highlight an audio clip and attach a gain envelope by going to Process/Apply Effect/Gain Envelope, but I see that option is changed to just "Gain", and a dialog box pops up instead, which seems to only able to effect the entire clip, or whatever portion of the clip you highlight. That does me no good if I want to create a gradual gain curve up or down. It was a good alternative option instead of having to record automation. I used to be able to insert a gain envelope and see a gain line with nodules across the clip (similar to how an EQ looks), and you could add nodules and increase or decrease gain, or create a gain curve in any area of the clip by dragging up or down on the nodules. Handy little tool for certain situations. Did they do away with that, or is there another way to access that now? I also tried the right click menu, but didn't see anything there either. Thanks! MM
  11. Thanks for the replies. RBH, some of my older tracks were stereo, some were mono, so I've been going on case by case basis, but I understand what you're saying. There's not much I can do about panning the tracks that were recorded in stereo, but a lot of those were keyboard/synth tracks. Back then I was just starting out learning the guitar, so I wasn't really good enough to record a lot of my own guitar tracks. I'm a keyboard player primarily. lapasoa, I see what you're talking about, but apparantly I'm not using it.....what's the difference between the Send panel in the Console View, and the Output in the Track View? I'm asking because right now for example I have all the Acoustic Guitar tracks' Outputs routing to the Ac Guitar Sub buss, and that Ac Guitar Sub buss routed to the Master buss, and for panning I'm just using the Pan slider in the Track view. The Send panel section in the Console View is grayed out right now because I haven't entered any destination, so I guess I'm bypassing that option the way I have it set up. I guess what I'm trying to say is, wouldn't each method of panning accomplish the same thing, whether I'm using the Pan slider in the track view, or the Pan knob in the console's Send section? DeeringAmps, thanks for mentioning the FX, I had not thought about the FX may be causing the ghosting at the center, I'll check that by soloing, good idea.
  12. Hi Friends, I have been going through some of my older projects that have been recorded on older versions of Sonar/Cakewalk, and were saved as bun files. They are loading into Bandlab as project files just fine, no issues there. I wasn't in the habit of using sub busses very often back then, so I've been re-working the routing of the tracks, giving each instrument a color theme, and setting up submixes/busses for each instrument, in an effort to better organize and have more control over the mixes. This has worked out good so far. So if my project has 4 Acoustic Guitar tracks, I would set each to route to the Acoustic Guitar sub buss I have just added, which in turn routes to the Master output buss. I'm no expert engineer by any stretch, but after watching a few Cakewalk YT videos, as far as I know, this is the standard basic setup that will get the job done, and certainly more efficiently than the way I used to set up my mix. I've also begun to move my FX from the main tracks to the sub buss, as long as the FX is the same for all the tracks in question. What I've noticed in the process, is if say all the Acoustic Guitar tracks are panned differently, let's say two are panned at 9 o'clock, and two are panned at 3 o'clock, when they are sent to the Acoustic Guitar sub buss, the panning transfers ok, but if the sub buss is panned at center, I also seem to be hearing all four tracks "to some small degree" in the center of my mix. Now I don't know if I just think I'm hearing it that way or if it's just a result of how everything is panned, or if it's because the sub buss is panned center. So I was wondering if this is typically the best way to maintain the pan settings of the original tracks now that I'm routing them to a sub buss. If anyone has suggestions for setting things up a different way that might work better, I'm open to hearing your thoughts.......or if I'm actually going about this the wrong way, then please let me know where I'm off. Much appreciated, will check back later. Thank you! MM
  13. Hey Nigel, thanks for the information. I have a full version, but according to what you're saying about needing 64bit, I'll need to upgrade. For now I could just record tracks in R5 and export the wav for import to Cakewalk. Not the same as rewire, but it will suffice in some situations for now until I can upgrade.
  14. Hi, anyone have a line on where I can get information on how to setup Propellerhead Reason to record tracks within Cakewalk? For some reason my searches only turn up info on upgrading to the most current version of Reason, and the rewire info I found seemed to be for old versions of Sonar, not Bandlab. I have a much older version of Reason (5), but I believe it can still be done. I had done it years ago, but my memory of the procedure has since faded. Just looking for some basic info would be helpful for me to learn how to set it up again so that I can record tracks using Reason's sounds and modules, and make it sync to Cakewalk project tempo for any drums or percussion tracks. Thanks in advance, much appreciated. MM
  15. I understand, thanks again. Guess I'll have to go through and determine if I still have any VST2 plugins. I think I remember seeing a few that have the option of being used as either VST2 or VST3. If I remember correctly, I think in certain plugins' window there's a dropdown list where you can choose to use it as either 2 or 3, I could be mistaken.
